Atlanta, Georgia, June 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A Georgia court has awarded the wife of a William Martinez $3 million over her husband’s heart attack. The jury concluded that the Atlanta cop’s doctor should have warned the officer against strenuous exercise activities such as the threesome that the man was having at the time he passed away after having a heart attack.

Martinez who suffered from atheroschlerotic coronary artery disease, collapsed and died while he and one of his male friends were having sex with a woman who was not his wife at an airport motel three years ago.

The negligence of Dr. Sreenivasulu Gangasani and the Cardiovascular Group are, according to the Gwinnett County jury, 60% responsible for the police officer’s death, as they did not adequately diagnose the cop for his symptoms, which included chest pains, shortness of breath and irregular heartbeat.

The jury also determined that William Martinez himself had been 40% responsible for his own death. Because of this shared responsibility, Martinez’s widow was awarded a compensation of $3 million instead of $5 million, amount that the officer’s widow would have been awarded if her husband’s doctors had found 100% responsible for the officer’s death.
